Thread: Avidemux: Malware?

  1. #1

    Default Avidemux: Malware?

    I just ran Avidemux 2.6.5 trough* and got the following hit:
    TrendMicro-HouseCall TROJ_GEN.F47V0312
    Its the only hit, none of the other AV engines found anything. What should I do?

    * I sent the URLs for the direct download link at and both 32bit and 64bit downloads at sourceforge.

    Feeling down? You need a Friday thread.

    You’re probably right, but I’m pretty paranoid about malware. I’ve sent an email, hopefully they can straighten things out.
    It could just be that the installation software was used for a Trojan in the past.

    It's not VirusTotal who must "straighten it out" they just use the anti-virus engines, if you want to complain, complain to TrendMicro.

    If you want to scan for malware in the future you should grab the following:
